The Perfect Location to live in

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date Sep 2022

The building is well laid out with good space in the corridors so people can pass each other easily and plenty of elevators. With access to to roof areas, 11th floor and 12th from, from work hub and garden room there are fantastic views so when breaking from home working and great place to take 10 minutes to chill.

Well thought out meeting area beside reception area with tea and coffee facilities. Having a room which can be booked for parties and / or having family and friends over for a meal, great cooking facilities in it, is a bonus.

With TV Rooms, which can be booked for private parties i.e. film night with friends, and a well thought out gym with all the equipment you need, it hits top ratings with me.

The Laundry Room has plenty of machines and is well laid out with a clothes horse if you do not wish to tumble dry and also ironing facilities.

The building is kept impressively clean and in good working order at all times.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Perfect location for shops, bars, restaurants, nightclubs, open spaces all within a few minutes walk maximum and central for both bus and rail transport, train station being 10 minutes walks away maximum and all buses around city have stops within a maximum of 5 minute walks from the building.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

You just never actually know how well supported you will be by building management and customer services. Whilst a lot of companies make claims of being great with support this one just does it.

From the top down, Brenda being the overall manager, to Bruce and Natasha the 2 other managers right through to all the customer service people, Jordan and Madi and Rowan and Vaida and Phil, Stuart in Maintenance, not forgetting the night shift security staff of Rich and Sam, you get the feeling they are all happy to work here and more than happy to assist you with anything.

The cleaners, whose names escape me, are working round the building 7 days a week keeping the elevators and communal area very clean for us and always have a smile and warm greeting for people.

You do not expect to find people who take such pride in their jobs and actually care and wish to help people and THAT was the pleasant surprise I found about this place, having been in many places which say they do then do not ACTUALLY do!

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

There is an expectation of respect for everyone staying here and that behaviour will be appropriate. I had an issue with someone slamming a door and it was resolved extremely fast. If I notice anything, which residents do have to help management with, and report it, such as a hinge on a door coming loose or an elevator with a warning light, they are on it in minutes.

Amazing

Review Date Oct 2022

The facilities are well and helped me with the stay. The staff has always been there as well and the gym is pretty cool with plenty of room and different spaces, but the only thing i would add is more weights if possible or maybe a boxing room next to the gym.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

There has not been any bad aspects from my experience additionally Natasha, Brenda, Vaida, Phil and Maddie have been really helpful and supportive in my stay. They have always welcomed me.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Great place

Review Date Oct 2022

The management is perfect very polite staff, 24/7 line to call building reception and 24hr security within the building, the modern design which I personally love, the facilities such as Gym, club rooms, study room, TV lounges are within the building.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Union st is a 1 min walk, bus stops are close as well, university is a 7 min bus ride. Everything you need is next to you.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

A simple video giving a tour of each room design such as delux, super delux, one bed rather than images would have been nicer.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

24/7 management if I had any issues I’m sure the staff would deal with it swiftly

Review Date Sep 2022

The Point is well designed and built to a very high standard. The rooms are comfortable and quiet with good living space. The roof top social areas are fantastic with stunning views over the rooftops of Aberdeen. I have used the Club Room to host dinners with friends who were also very impressed with the views.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The Point is located in the heart of Aberdeen with many local facilities for food and drink! There are many links with local buses serving both universities.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

The property website in very informative and helped with my decision making about moving in.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

The management team includes expertise to respond to any issues I have raised (not many). They are multi-skilled and through the property website readily respond if any issue arises.

The property is just amazing with the gym being a 10 second walk from my room. The club room and garden room are brilliant and easy to book. Staff go over and above to make sure you feel at home and are so helpful! I never feel annoying asking questions as reception staff are happy to help.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Right in the city centre, couldn’t be a better location. Although we are next to denburn road we cannot hear the traffic.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

The only thing I can fault is that our kitchen did not have a bin, but that was no big deal.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

They help straight away. For example my room didn’t have a desk chair and staff managed to find one for me straight away.

the design of the point is immaculate! the rooms inside the building have real plants & super comfy furniture which makes for a great relaxing evening after work or education during the day! the building is always very clean & well kept so it is overall a very nice environment to live in!

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

the range of local shops is great! sainsburys just down the road followed with a butchers, several cafes & 4 shopping centres all within a 10 minute walk! several bars and restaurants within walking distance is great & i have never heard lots of noise from them considering how close they are! i have lived here since june 2022 and haven’t seen or heard of any anti social behaviour around the point.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I wish i was showed how to top up my circuit laundry card! it wasn’t difficult but for someone like me who isnt the best with technology it was a little tricky setting it up! but luckily thanks to one of many friendly residents i was shown how to use it & it is very straightforward once its all set up!

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

any queries i have had at the point have been resolved by staff very well & efficiently!

Great apartment in the city centre, stress free living!

Well managed facilities in the building, apartment is spacious with good views, and all common areas are clean and well designed. Plenty of space for everybody, even when the building is full! The various common rooms cater for all requirements too, something for everybody.

Reception and office staff are especially lovely, very friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble!

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Great location for city centre amenities and tourist spots. Some noise from nearby bars on a weekend, and parking is a short walk away.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

City centre parking isn’t cheap, and is a short walk from the block

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Yes, I have reported issues in common areas and in my apartment and all dealt with within 24hrs

The whole place made me feel at ease. It has several quiet, clean, modeen, spacious and calming places to study, relax or even to hangout with friends. gym and TV rooms are super clean and comfortable. Standard rooms are perfectly sized for one to two people, super clean and well furnished and equipped.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The location is perfect, you can literally go anywhere from here in less than 10 mins walking, lots of shops and shopping centers and only few mins away from union st. very easy to get around with public transportation.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Before moving in they have informed me with what I would need to buy and have clearly explained the area. Also, there was a cute bag with essential stuff like kitchen and toilet papers, detergents and sprays, that was a lovely gesture.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

All the team are easy to talk and extremely friendly, always there and has never failed to offer help, very quickly to respond.
